ROS-Industrial Summer School Summary

The inagural ROS Summer School hosted by ROS-Industrial Asia Pacific Consortium in collaboration with Singapore Polytechnic and FH Aachen brining the ROS Summer School concept to Singapore for the first time was a success!

Towards Day 5 there was 7 teams all competing for ROS-Industrial goodies by navigating a turtlebot around a closed circuit race-track either Teleoperated, Reactive or Fully Autonomous.

Congrats to Team 2 for winnning! Well done!

Thank you to all the participants, trainers and organisers for a great event!

Note this training is being performed in Singapore by trainers from FH Aachen. The course material is different to all the trainings as this is the summer school program that's shortened to 5 days which is delivered in Europe by FH Aachen. There are 3 trainers coming from Aachen to support this training as well as additional support staff by ROS-Industrial Consortium.

This is the first time we are offering a summer school in Singapore in collaboration with FH Aachen.

However do note that for the challenge there will be about 2-3 participants per laptop and monitor along with a turtlebot3. The challenge is a group exercise.
